reject torture!

Take Action!
Tell Gonzalez to Reject Torture

Sojourners editor-in-chief Jim Wallis and more than 225 religious leaders have sent an open letter to Attorney General nominee Alberto Gonzalez, asking him "to denounce the use of torture under any circumstances."

Gonzales has also faced stiff questioning from both Republicans and Democrats for his role in policies that have bent long-established international norms and U.S. laws prohibiting torture.

Sojourners is now teaming up with ActForChange, True Majority, MoveOn, Faithful America, and Win Without War to urge members of the U.S. Senate to call on Alberto Gonzales to sign a Declaration Against Torture, unequivocally renouncing all forms of torture and abuse as instruments of American policy. Tell your Senators to insist that as the U.S.'s top law enforcement official, Alberto Gonzales must clearly and consistently uphold internationally recognized standards of human rights.
